Three F1 teams have reportedly called on the FIA to check out suspicious car similarities between Ferrari’s F1-75 and Haas’ VF-22. Both teams have enjoyed stellar starts to the year with the Prancing Horse blazing a trail in both championships and Gunther Steiner’s Haas regularly featuring in the points. 

Both Haas and Ferrari have come on leaps and bounds from last year, with the balance of power in the F1 pack shuffled dramatically amid a transition to the new ‘ground effect’ era. The former failed to score a single point and trailed wildly off the pace in 2021, while the latter were unable to compete with Mercedes and Red Bull on a consistent basis. 

Things have changed dramatically in the three races so far this season. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc has won two of them, claiming second behind Max Verstappen in the other, while Haas star Kevin Magnussen already has more points on the board than the likes of Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso. 

Auto Motor und Sport claim that, although no teams have owned up, three have asked the FIA to check on ‘matches’ between the Ferrari and Haas cars. McLaren, Aston Martin, Alpine and Mercedes have been deemed the most likely crop of telltales due to previous behaviour.
